update: colour reversal is strange. The strip has no manual wiring, connects to controller through 4-pin connector. Even if it were reversed, would not explain the problem as none of the LEDs would light.
Maybe it's a problem with the remote control. If possible try different ones.
I do agree that colour reversel is strange. And I'm not crazy, I took the 2 defective ones, and the on that was OK, plugged them all side by side and tried all 3 remotes one at a time. All 3 remotes are fine. Trying to set them to blue with one remote, they all react at the same time. The correct one does in fact go blue, the 2 defective ones go green.

But at the end of the day it doesn't matter, I disassembled the defective ones and used them with an ESP micro controller to control them over wifi and with that you can chose which pin light up which color.

Easy solution - when you want blue colour push the green button on remote and vice versa.

I don't understand how someone won't buy a Japanese or Korean vehicle if fuel, longevity, repairs and maintenance are prime considerations.

God bless'em for staying pack leaders for decades.

Your RGB dash isn't bad too, BCS.

I don't recommend opening any packages at Dollarama. I found an open package (tear in corner from whoever opened it first) of a bluetooth keyboard for a tablet. I slid it out of the package a few inches and tapped the keys, and decided I didn't like the way the keys pressed. Instead of abandoning it opened, I was carefully putting it back in the package when a security guard appeared and told me to buy it, the "or else" was implied. I told him the packaging was torn when I found it. He huffed and moaned and made a big show of getting scotch tape to fix the flap at the top. I left the store and never went back. Yeah, I should have known better, but it was a humiliating experience.

That sounds like a shady Dollarama, most don't even have security guards. Plus security guards have the authority of a ham sandwich, tell them 'no' and walk away.

Dollaramas are everywhere, in nice areas, and not so nice. Stay away from the grittier locations and you'll be fine. Life's too short.

The nicer Dollaramas are downright pleasant, many in-college student workers with pleasing professional communication styles.

God bless.

Usually don’t go in the clothing aisle, but saw the memory foam slippers. For $4, why not.

Philips has a good reputation for bulbs. If I were you, I would buy one to try.

I bought 2 and they’re great. I use for two lamps. I only found yellow light though, wanted the white light :(

At the same time, a genuine Apple one is 9$, and they're excellent quality. Some android devices have the max volume too low so depending on what you're using it for it might not be ideal, but for me max volume is around where I'd like it to be so meh. They also work plug and play on Windows, using the USB C to A adapter.

Philips has a great reputation.

Just stay away from any Globe LED bulbs. I used a few outdoor ones with the day/night style and most have failed within a year, and the grow lights have a similar failure rate. Reminds me of the early days of LEDs when most were crap.
